    Maybe they feel they can satisfy their needs using escorts instead

    Looked at your comment then at your username. I'm really hoping that was coincidental and not intentional from you there

    Money is the obvious answer, yes, but I feel as though there's more to it than that. Security and support, maybe?

    Money would be a big factor in some cases but I think the majority of the time when someone marries someone they don't truly love or attracted to, it's mainly because they are scared of being alone and that they wont ever find someone better so they settle for second best.

    I think that's a very sensible answer. From my perspective though, I see more married women that aren't attracted to their spouse, than the other way around. Maybe women have a greater fear of being alone than men? I think in general, men are more comfortable in solitude than women are.
